Here they come – 42 of them – episodes, that is.
Starting this Saturday, August 10, at 1pm ET, over-the-air channel Decades will run a marathon of Here Come the Brides (check Decades.com/binge for airtime in your area).
The series, a comedy western that aired originally on ABC from 1968 to 1970, was based on the Mercer Girls Project, an effort in the 1860s to civilize the overwhelmingly male population of the Pacific Northwest by importing marriageable women.
The series stars Robert Brown, pop music icon Bobby Sherman and Starsky & Hutch’s David Soul as the Bolt brothers.The cast also includes Golden Age movie star Joan Blondell as Lottie Hatfield, Bridget Hanley as Candy Pruitt, and Star Trek’s Mark Lenard as Aaron Stempel.
The Decades binge starts with the 11th episode in the series, “A Christmas Place,’ and concludes Monday at 6 am with “Two Women.” The series originally ran two seasons for a total of 52 episodes.
